Do wet clutches slip more when cold?

Will a wet clutch, on its way out, tend to slip more when the engine is cold? I notice on mine when I first get on it after it has sat overnight or longer, it takes a lot of throttle to get it moving. I thought the brakes were sticking, but if I put it in neutral it rolls easily. After that it moves like normal. I think my clutch is on its way out anyway and plan on changing it this winter, but I was curious if anything else could cause this issue.

Im using AMSOIL 0-40 ATV in my 00 500 manual and i have the opposite. Clutch still grips well, but I notice my takeoff suffers (slightly) once the engine gets nice and hot.
